who would narrowly characterize the case against confirmation want us to confine our examination of judge sotomayor's record only to her cases while ignoring her speeches and arls. articles. a partial review, however, cannot provide a complete picture. appeals court decisions that are bound by supreme court precedent are not the same as supreme court decisions freed from such constraints. taking judge sotomayor's entire record seriously not only gives us more of the information we need, but also gives her the respect that she deserves. debates over judicial nominations are debates over judicial power, and america's founders gave us solid guidance about the proper role of judges in our system of government. judges interpret and apply written law to decide cases. while judges cannot change the words of or laws -- our laws, they can still control statutes and the constitution by controlling the meaning of those words. that would result in the role of judges but not role of law. to borrow judge sotomayor's phrase, judges would not have fidelity to the law, but fidelity to themselves. in
